About the Gun

The P22 is an identical, but smaller .22LR caliber version of Walther's 9mm Model P99 pistol. Like the P99, it is a polymer frame, double-action (DA/SA), semi-automatic pistol. Unlike the P99, it is hammer-fired and utilizes a fixed barrel, straight blowback operation, as do most .22LR caliber pistols. The safety and magazine release controls are ambidextrous. The frame includes an integrated accessory rail and the grip has interchangeable palmswells.

About the Cartridge

The Stevens Arms Co. developed the .22 Long Rifle rimfire cartridge from the .22 Long cartridge case developed 16 years earlier, with a 40 grain round nose bullet loaded to a higher velocity than the older 29 grain .22 Long bullet. Modern .22 Long Rifle High Velocity cartridges drive a 40 grain copper-plated bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1255 fps and muzzle energy of 140 ft-lbs from a rifle barrel. This rimfire cartridge has become the most popular sporting and target shooting cartridge in the world.
